When a lost and disoriented Gaze rings up her brother to get directions, she discovers that she is very far from home in this Topic winning Flipnote by CosmicGAZ.
We loved the clever location based humor here when describing her surroundings, like the severe lack of oxygen, and even the American flag, presumably N.A.S.A.s, which all leads to the outlandish punchline reveal when she finally sees the Big Blue Marble in the sky, and realizes that in fact, she is on the moon!

We simply roared with laughter along with this weird and crazy Topic winning story involving an enormous moon by Voxenl.

When a stick man throws his friend into the sky, it must be some kind of record, for after landing, he finds himself once again on the moon, in this bizarre and hilarious winning Topic entry by kingwink.
Did you ever get that sinking feeling?
Blub, blub, blub…..!
This Topic could be about anything at all that sinks.
For example, a boat could easily sink into the ocean. But there’s plenty of other things that could be sunk into; Like quicksand, a swamp, a ball pit, or even the floor if magic is involved!
Feel free to sink anything into absolutely anything!
But here’s an idea you might like to try.
1 Using both Flipnote layers, draw your OC on one, and a surface to sink into on the other.
2 Then, with the shoulder button and D-Pad controls, move your character gradually down, frame by frame, erasing it as it passes a surface line (Use trace for this), until it's completely sunk.
3 You could also add bubbles, ripples, and other effects to spice up the action.
However you decide to handle this topic, why not sink your teeth into an entry today!
We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.
Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Sinking and the deadline for your entries is November 19th (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).
We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.
And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.
Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
